We’ve been talking about this fight has been since Cris Cyborg won the vacant featherweight Championship at UFC 214 when she defeated Tonya Evinger in the third round via TKO.
Holly Holm snapped a three-fight losing streak with a knockout win over Bethe Correia in June. She has previously challenged for the 145-pound title, dropping a unanimous decision to Germaine de Randamie in February. De Randamie then vacated the title,setting up the Cyborg/Evinger fight.
The bout will likely serve as the headliner for the December 30th card in Las Vegas.
